Alerts may include natural disaster evacuations, hazardous materials contaminations, missing persons, terrorism preparedness, criminal activity, public health, and any other events that are deemed an emergency by the Greenwood Village Police Department.
Landline Telephones Included
All landline telephone numbers and Comcast Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) numbers located in the boundaries of Greenwood Village are already included in the ArapAlert databases so residents and businesses will automatically get alerts through their landline telephones. Residents and Businesses do not need to worry about adding landline phones to the notification system.
Add Your Cell Phone or Other Communication Device to Receive Alerts
You can also sign up to receive emergency alerts on any other communication devices such as cellular phones, email, pager, and fax. The messages will be delivered in the form of voicemail, text message, instant message, fax, or email depending upon the settings you choose.
